    I did a stupid thing when I first installed CS3 and moved all Adobe stuff I installed into a folder I created and named Adobe. Than I totally forgot about it, and few days ago wanted to uninstall all this software. I used Adobe Installers in Utilities folder, but of course it didn't remove any apps, but it "thinks" it did, so there is no more option to move them back and uninstall again.
    Now, my question is, what is the best move here. Is all the stuff on my computer besides the actual apps already removed after uninstall, and would I be fine only appZapping the actual apps and deleting their folders, or should I do something else? Thanks

    Man, I did the EXACT same thing. I put all my Adobe apps into a folder and it completely messed stuff, including deactivating my license, which was a lot more trouble getting reactivated than you can imagine (but that is another story).

    Anyway, I think (*think* so double check) the only Adobe stuff other than the apps is an Adobe folder in system/library/application support. Check there, otherwise I think you can just AppZap the programs you want to remove.
